Personality and traits
Riosovsky is described as a classical dictator by the West due his shadowy past and rise to power stained with the blood of his opponents. Often his style of leadership is charismatic yet manipulative instills fear of the secret police, his quest for power is what's described as his reason for quick anger with no hesitation to resort to murder and extortion if need be. He is prone to being volatile to those who fail him, specifically by having whomever it is be shot repeatedly. Riosovsky also privately believes that his family are the successors to the Romanovs.
However he is not totally devoid of love as he cares for his three sons greatly, this attitude was magnified after his wife Anya was killed in 2008 by Georgian ultra-nationalists, and left him with the difficulty of running the largest country in the world and making sure Alexi and Pavel weren't left alone for too long, for the death of their mother at young ages had a huge impact on them. His father and brother are among this affection, along with his niece Tatiana. But he only reserves his kind nature for his family. He rarely displays any brutishness for Alexi who he views as the most delicate.
